The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion: 

Commissioner of Police,} 
Chicago, October 29, 1928.| 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I desire to advise your Honorable 
Body that at about 12:30 A. M., on October 28, 1928, 
one Joseph Koestick, alias Joseph Barth, alias Ed- 
ward Darrow, entered the soft drink parlor con- 
ducted by John Corcoran at 7338 Racine avenue, and 
compelled all the patrons to line up against the wall, 
with their hands over their heads and, pointing a 
sawed-off shotgun at them, proceeded to rob them. 

Patrolman Thomas Curtin of the 20th District, as- 
signed to the Detective Bureau under Commissioner 
Stege, while touring the district to which he was 
assigned, heard a commotion in Corcoran's place of 
business and entered and observing the said Koestick 
in the act of committing a felony, notified him that 
he was under arrest. Koestick fired two shots at 
Patrolman Curtin, who drew his revolver and re- 
turned the fire, resulting in the killing of Koestick. 

From an investigation of all the facts and cir- 
cumstances I desire to advise your Honorable Body 
that, in my opinion. Patrolman Curtin is entitled to 
great praise for his heroic conduct, which not only 
reflects credit upon himself but upon the entire De- 
partment of Police. In my opinion some official re- 
cognition should he given to this heroic act on the

mending tlie adoption of said resolution as amended 
by said committee. 

Alderman Clark moved lo concur in said report and 
to adopt said resolution. 

No request being made by any two Aldermen present 
to defer consideration of said report for final action 
tbereon until the next regular meeting, and the ques- 
tion being put, the vote thereon was as follows: 

Yeas — Coughlin, Anderson, Jackson, Cronson, Gross-

Nays — None. 

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, The Board of Assessors, on September 
4, 1928, presented to the Board of Commissioners of 
Cook County a detailed, plan for making the reas- 
sessment under the order of the State Tax Commis- 
sion and in compliance with said order and in con- 
formity with Rule 14 of said Tax Commission and 
requested the Board of Commissioners of Cook 
County to appropriate approximately $809,375.00 to 
defray the necessary expenses of such reassessment 
to be so made; and 

Whereas, The Board of Commissioners of Cook 
County on September 12, 1928, in accordance with 
the request of September 4 from the Board of As- 
sessors, provided for an appropriation of $809,- 
375.00 to be included in the budget of 1929, and also 
provided that said amount should be available now 
to pay the necessary expenses of making this re- 
assessment as ordered by the Tax Commission and 
m accordance with Rule 14 of that Commission; and 

Whereas, Judge Friend in the Circuit Court of 
Cook County on October 10, 1928, denied the injunc- 
tion writ for which a petition was filed on August 
6, and refused to restrain the local assessment ofTi- 
cers from making the reassessment of real estate 
of Cook County in the year 1928 as ordered by the 
Tax Commission; and 

Whereas, Further injunction proceedings against 
the County Treasurer are threatened in order to 
prevent him from paying all, or any part of the 
$809,375.00 provided by the Board of Commissioners 
of Cook County for services and other expenditures 
required by the Board of Assessors for making this 
reassessment as ordered, and such proceedings, even 
if unsuccessful eventually, would operate so to de- 
lay the reassessment that the City and County are ' 
thereby seriously threatened by the menace of no 



legal asses.sment in 1928 on which lo colled in apt 
time revenue for the schools and oLhei' jjuhlic pur- 
poses in 1-929; and 

WiiKiiKAS, 'J'lirough the publication of the 1927 as- 
sessment of real estate in Cook County, made under 
th(j or(l(!r of the State 'i'ax Commission, and the in- 
vi^sljgations by the Illinois Joint Revenue Commit- 
tee, said 1927 assessment of real estate in Cook 
County has been shown to be so unfair, inequitable 
and lackmg in uniformity that, in justice to the tax 
payers and public bodies charged with responsibility 
lor conducting the public business, said reassess- 
ni(!nt should proceed without hindrance or delay- 
now, therefore, be it 

Resolved, By the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago, that in order that an equitable and uniform re- 
assessment of real estate in Cook County may be 
made by the local assessment ofTicers, under fheir 
plan and Rule 14, as ordered by the Tax Commis- 
sion, the sum of $280,853.00 is hereby pledged to be 
appropriated and set up in the 1929 budget by the 
City Council for the purpose of defraying the ex- 
penses incident to the work of obtaining the neces- 
sary information under said Rule 14 in regard to 
lots and improvements thereon as set forth in the 
plan presented by the Assessors to the County Board 
and approved by that Board on September 12 1928 
said sum of $280,853.00 herein indicated being the 
pro rata share of the City of Chicago of the total 
expenditure of $809,375.00 provided and appro- 
priated by the County Board on September 12 1928 
the payment of which $809,375.00 in apt time to meet 
the public needs may otherwise be prevented by 
the threatened injunction proceedings; and be it 
further 

Resolved, Further, that clerks or deputies of the 
assessors of this County whose salaries or compen- 
sation are advanced out of funds provided hereunder 
shall, at the time of such advancement or payment 
assign the payroll items or compensation covered 
by such payments, in trust in some sufficient form, 
for the benefit of the municipalities whose funds 
are used in such payments or advanced. 

Adjustments in the Salary Rates of Sundry Employes,

REPORT 
ON THE 

USE OF THE CITY VEHICLE LICENSE TAX 


Prepared 
By The 
Street Traffic Committee 
Of 

The Chicago Association of Commerce 
— — 
October, 1928 ' 

USE OF CITY VEHICLE LICENSE TAX 

(1) During the present year there has been much 
concern over the condition of the city streets and 
this has led to questions relative to the expenditure 
of the city vehicle tax revenue, and its use for pur- 
poses other than actual street repair and mainte- 
nance. 

(2J The ordinance requiring the payment of a 
vehicle tax by all owners of vehicles in the city of 
Chicago was adopted in 1908. It was based upon the 
theory that vehicles owned and operated in Chicago 
and using the streets to an increasing extent with 
each passing year should contribute to the growing 
cost of repair and maintenance. It will. be noted 
that this tax was designed snecifically to aid in 
keeping our streets in good condition and not as an 
addition to the corporate revenues of the city, as in 
the case of other miscellaneous license taxes, nor as 
a substitute for street maintenance appropriation 
from the general funds. 

(3) The original ordinance covering the expendi- 
ture of funds derived from the vehicle license tax 
provided that 85% of the money collected in any 
ward should be expended in repairing and maintain- 
ing the streets of that ward. The remaining 15% 
should be expended by the. Commissioner of Public 
Works in repair and maintenance of heavy traffic 
arteries regardless of where located. This was a 
definite and easily understood method of apportion- 
ing the funds so that each ward could know the 
amount of money available from this source in any 
given year for street repair and maintenance pur- 
poses. 

(4) Upon the argument that the 85% and 15% 
method of dividing the revenue gave some wards 



jnoyc. money limn needed and left olhers without 
Kurii('i(!nt funds to care for urgently necessary work, 
tiiis iii'ovision of the orflina/uje lias not been fol- 
lowed in recrmt years, and was entii-ely eJiminated 
hy repeal on August 0, 1928. Instead, it appears 
tiiat no inetiiod excej)t fliscretion and exjtediency was 
substitutfid for tiie original definite plan. 

(5) Wheel tax revenue eollected was in excess 
of $/i'iO,000.00 in 1908 and annual collections have 
since grown rapidly until it is estimated Uiat more 
than .Vi, 500,000.00 will have been collected in 1928. 

(fi) As the revenue increased so did the tempta- 
tion to utilize parls of it for purposes not connected 
with the repair anrl maintenance of the street sur- 
faces. Such unauthorized use was tolerated from 
year to year in direct violation of the statute en- 
abling the levy of this tax which specifically limited 
the use of the revenue so derived to repair of streets 
and alleys. 

(7) The 1928 appropriation bill set up the dis- 
tribution of the wheel tax fund as follows : 

City Clerk, City Collector, Police De- 
partment, Clerical Work, License 

Tags, etc 439,495.00 

Bureau of Engineering to repair of 

paving on bridge approaches 200,000.00 

Bureau of Sewers to replace manhole 

and catch basin covers, etc 50,000.00 

Bureau of Streets to repair of streets. 3,820,505.00 

Total $4,510,000.00 

The amount appropriated to the Bureau of Streets 
is divided as follows: 

General administration and super- 
intendence .$ 99,900.00 

Maintenance and repair equipment.. 123,330.00 

Purchase of equipment 135,000.00 

Street and warning tra-ffic signals. . . . 111,000.00 

Maintenance of plants 29,500.00 

To pay 1927 unpaid bills, teams, 

salaries and wages 449,380.00 

For repair of streets 2,872,395.00 

Total $3,820,505.00 

(8) The cost of collection of the vehicle tax in- 
cluding the cost of the tags has increased from 
.$3,239.34 or %% of the total vehicle tax expendi- 
ture in 1908, to $439,495.00 or 9%% in 1928. The 
cost of collection per vehicle, including the cost of 
the tags, has increased from 6c in 1908 to $1.03 in 
1928 or an increase of 1700%. 

(9) It was not until 1917 that the Bureaus of 
Engineering and Sewers first received monies out 
of the vehicle tax fund. This appropriation has in- 
creased from $49,700.00 to $200,000.00 for the Bu- 
reau of Engineering; for the Bureau of Sewers it 
has increased from $18,800.00 to $50,000.00. 

(10) After the deduction for the expense of col- 
lection and the portions going to the Bureaus of 
Engineering and Sewers, it will be noted in this 
budget set-up that the Bureau of Streets received 
$3,820,505.00. Of this sum the budget actuallv pro- 
vided for $2,872,395.00 to be used in the repair of 
streets. 

dll The money spent by the Bureau of Streets 
has been gradually decreasing from a figure of 99% 
(in 1908) of the total amount expended to 84.5% 
(in 1928V The figure most interesting to the public, 
however, is that of the amount spent in actual re- 
pair work. In 1908, 99% of the total exoenditure 
was actually put into repair of streets. Each year

this percentage has been decreasing until this year 
when under the present ordinance the Council ap- 
propriated for repair work only 63.7% of the prob- 
able total collection. 

(12) Tlie express purpose of this report is to rec- 
ommend certain changes in the use and distribution 
of the revenue derived from vehicle owners. The 
first matter suggested for consideration is tliat of 
division of the entire fund. 

PROPOSED DIVISION OF ENTIRE VEHICLE TAX FUND 

(13) Conditions have changed since the adoption 
of the first ordinance in which it was provided that 
85% of the available fund for repairs should be re- 
turned to the ward in which collected and 15% to 
the Commissioner of Public Works to be used on 
heavily traveled streets. Today travel is rnore wide- 
spread and it seems imperative that a greater per- 
centage of the fund should be applied to the major 
traffic streets. It is suggested that- the entire fund 
collected be divided as follows : 

(1) Collection (Not to exceed) 2% 

(2) Administration (Not to exceed) 5% 

To include superintendence and repair 
of equipment. 

(3) Repair of Major Traffic Streets ' 45% 

This portion to be assigned to the en- 
tire city and then each ward to receive a 
proportionate share according to the 
method hereinafter indicated. 

(4) Repair of Local Traffic Streets 35% 

This portion to be assigned to the en- 
tire city and then each ward to receive a 
proportionate share according to the 
method hereinafter indicated. 

(5) Commissioner of Public Works' Fund 13% 

This portion to be used in the repair of 
heavily traveled streets in any wards 
where the ward allotment proves insuffi- 
cient, and to include any funds which may 
be properly and legally allotted by the 
Commissioner of Public Works to any 
bureau. 

With such a distribution of the funds, 93% will 
be used in the actual repair made necessary by the 
operation of vehicles — a condition which has not 
existed since 1910. 

Collection of Tnst 

(14) The only legally permissible charges 
against the vehicle license tax fund for collection 
are the actual cost of the manufacture of the license 
tags along with storage and physical handling costs; 
a moderate amount to cover clerk hire; printing; 
and mailing of notices. This total amount should 
not exceed 2% of the entire fund. 

(15) Suggested Method of Checking Delinquents. 
It is suggested that clerks be employed at Spring- 
field to make up daily lists of owners giving Chi- 
cago addresses to whom state motor vehicle licenses 
are issued. Such lists — on cards, and containing 
names, addresses, state license numbers, kinds of 
vehicles, and other pertinent information — to be 
filed in Chicago and used as a basis for issuing warn- 
ings and later, if necessary, summonses to those 
delinquents in paying city vehicle tax. It is be- 
lieved that such a system would require not more 
than three clerks at Springfield and three in Chi- 
cago. Notices and summonses could be served by 
police officers in the various districts or police pre- 
cincts. The enforcement of the wheel tax ordi- 



, nance, not unlike other ordinances, is clearly a func- 
tion of the Police Department. 

A-dministration 

(16) The 5% allotted for administration is to 
be expended under the general direction and au- 
thority of the Commissioner of Public Works of 
whose department the Bureau of Streets is a part. 
The items provided for under this classification are 
superintendence and maintenance and repair of 
equipment. Uniform practice in determining the 
extent of the repair work to be done is essential and 
to this end it is suggested that an annual survey 
be made by the present engineering staff of the 
Bureau of Streets to provide this information. The 
making of this survey is properly a part of the 
item of superintendence. It is not provided by the 
enabling statute that any, monies collected under 
the vehicle tax ordinance be used for purchase of 
equipment. This item should not appear in any 
appropriation from wheel tax revenue. Since this 
revenue was intended merely to supplement the 
general funds of the municipality to carry out the 
city's duty in keeping streets in a reasonable safe 
condition for travel, it is also questionable whether 
any part thereof should be used for repair of equip- 
ment. However, for the present, appropriation 
might be made to repair equipment heretofore pur- 
chased out of wheel tax revenue. In the event that 
appropriation for administration does not total 5% 
of the revenue, the balance thereof shall automatic- 
ally become a part of the fund known as "Gorh- 
missioner of Public Works' Fund." 

Major Traffic Streets 

(17) Because of their importance major traffic 
streets for the city as a whole are allotted 45% of 
the total vehicle tax fund. These arteries are sub- 
jected to unusual wear and tear and form the back- 
bone of the street system. In this classification 
are included all street car line streets, authorized 
through streets as provided for by ordinance and 
such other heavily traveled arteries as by location 
are of prime necessity to the movement of through 
traffic. The utmost importance is attached to the 
proper repairing of these classes of streets. 

Local Traffic Streets 

(18) Local traffic streets, by reason of their use 
principally by local traffic, are not normally sub- 
jected to severe wear and tear. Such streets are in- 
tended to include all thoroughfares other than those 
included in the classification of major traffic streets 
herein defined. This class of streets is allotted 35% 
of the total vehicle tax fund. 

Commissioner of Public Works' Fund 

(191 It is possible that in some wards sufficient 
funds out of regular allotments may not be avail- 
able in some years to provide for the necessary re- 
pair of major traffic streets. To meet such a situa- 
tion the Commissioner of Public Works is provided 
with an amount equal to 13% of the total vehicle 
tax fund. Any unexpended monies in this fund 
might properly be utilized in reconstructing the curb 
radii at more or loss dangerous intersections, and 
other similar purposes for which wheel tax revenue 
may properly and legally be used. 

PROPOSED METHOD TO DETERMINE WARD PROPORTIONS 

(20) It is of controlling importance to devise a 
method that will insure equitable and impartial dis- 
tribution of this important fund — one by which 
every alderman may test and determine that his

determined for the city and each ward by the Board 
of Local Improvements. In making up this figure, 
however, it is suggested that the Board of Local Im- 
provements do not consider as paved streets the 
old cedar block pavement, the laying of which was 
discontinued in 1903 and macadam pavements older 
than ton years.

census gives this information each ten years for the 
city and the individual ward. In the non-census 
years estimates are prepared by the Librarian of 
the Municipal Reference Library. 

(27) Using these four factors, it is easily de- 
termined what credit each ward should receive for 
its miles of paved streets, vehicular registration, 
area and population. Some of these factors should 
have more weight than others, and it is recommend- 
ed that iVIiles of Paved Streets receive 40%, Ve- 
hicular Registration 30%, Area 15%, and Populalion 
15%. 

(28) The following table is a typical exam ple of 
the application of these factors in relation to any

types of pavement and not include the mileage of Major Tralfic Streets. 



(29) If each factor had equal weight — that is 
25% — tlie ward w-ould receive 25% or one-fourth 
of the percentage figure in Column "C" for each 
factor. These factors, however, do not have the 
same weight and therefore the adjusted percentage 
for the ^.vard would be determined as follows : In 
case of the item, "Miles of Paved Streets" by taking 
40% of the figure 8 in column "C" which is 3.2%' 
similarly for "Vehicular Registration" by taking 
30% of the figure 4 in the same column which is 
1.2% and so on for the 'Other two factors. The 
total of the adjusted percentages in Column "D" in 
this case is 5.45% and is the percentage used to de- 
termine the amount due that ward. In this example, 
the ward w-ould be entitled to receive 5.45% of the 
money set aside for Local Traffic Streets. 

SUMMARY OP CONCLUSIONS 

(30) It is recommended that the City Council be 
requested to pass an ordinance providing for the 



distribution and expenditure of the vehicle tax fund 
in accordance with the intent of the state law which 
is the sole authority for raising such revenue. To 
this end it is recommended: 

A. That the entire revenue derived from the ve- 
hicle tax be apportioned as follows : 

Collection (Not to exceed ) 2% 

Administration (Not to exceed) 5% 

Repair of Major Traffic Streets 45% 

Repair of Local Traffic Streets 35% 

Commissioner of Public Works' Fund. 13% 

B. That the repair of Major Traffic Streets be 
made out of an appropriation of 45% of the 
entire revenue on the basis of miles of paved 
class of streets in each ward as compared 
with the total mileage of similar streets for 
for the whole city. 

C. That the repair of Local Traffic Streets be 
made out of an appropriation of 35% of the 



October 31, 1928. 



NEW BUSINESS— BY WARDS. 



3849 



entire revenue on the basis of miles of paved 
streets, vehicle registration, area and popu- 
lation in each \A-ard as compared with the 
total of those items for the whole city. 

D. That inasmuch as the Secretary of State is 
not required by law to compile lists of those 
applying for state licenses by cities or other 
groupings, arrangements should be made by 
the city to compile such information at 
Springfield for Chicago. These records to be 
used in Chicago by the proper city official and 
police department in such cases where the 
owner of a state license fails to pay his city 
wheel tax. 

Respectfuly submitted,

Chairman, Street Traffic Committee. 



Report of Work Performed on the Lake Calumet 
Harbor Project. 

Alderman Guernsey presented the following memo- 
randum, which was ordered published and placed on 
file: 

To the Honorable William Hale Thompson, Mayor 
of the City of Chicago, and the City Council, City 
of Chicago: 

Calumet Harbor project has been at a stand 
for two years and at the present time is in a chaotic 
and discouraging situation attributable largely to 
misunderstanding, misinformation, adverse State 
legislation and lack of co-ordination on the part of 
the agencies interested in the success of the venture. 

No matter who else may be making an effort to 
hasten the days of dredging, the City Administra- 
tion and City Council cannot escape the responsibil- 
ity for and the consequences of inaction. 

In order that further consideration of the Calumet 
Harbor problem may be based upon a full knowledge 
of the present situation and the incidents leading 
up to it, I have asked Benton F. Kleeman to prepare 
a short historical epitome of the work accomplished 
thus far which I submit herewith with a request 
that it be printed in a sufficient quantity to meet the 
demand which it has been compiled to supply. 

(Signed) Guy Guernsey, 

Alderman Sixth Ward. 

On motion of Alderman Guernsey authority was 
granted for the printing of 1,000 copies of the memo- 
randum submitted with the foregoing communication.

front of the premises known as No. 2237 East 71st 
street. 



Section 2. Any person, firm or corporation guilty 
of violatng this ordinance shall be fined not less 
than 'five dollars ($5.00) nor more than one hundred 
dollars ($100.00) for each offense. 

Section 3. The Commissioner of Public Works is 
hereby directed to place and maintain "'No Parking" 
signs in front of the premises designated ig. Section 
1 hereof. 

Section 4. This ordinance shall take effect and

THIRTEENTH WARD. 



In the Matter of Double Salaries Being Paid to Certain 
Officers and Attorneys of the Chicago Railways Co. 

Alderman McDonough presented the following reso- 
lution: 

Whereas. The newspapers recently published that 
Henry A. Blair as president of the Chicago Surface 
Lines receives a salary of $60,000 a year; that Frank 
L. Hupp as secretary of the Chicago Surface Lines 
receives a salary of $6,000 a year; that James M. 
Sheean as counsel for the Chicago Surface Lines re- 
ceives a salary of S25.000 a year; and that Wey- 
mouth Kirkland as counsel for the Chicago Railways 
Company receives a salary of $24,000 a year; and 
that since the Chicago Railways Company went into 
the hands of receivers about two years ago, the said 
Henry A. Blair as one of the receivers has been paid 
a salary of $60,000 a year; the said Frank L. Hupp, 
as secretary for the receivers has been paid a salary 
of $6,000 a year; the said James M. Sheean and Wey- 
mouth Kirkland as attorneys for the receivers have 
each been paid a salary of $24,000 a year; 

Frederick A. Rawson, as one of the receivers, has 
been paid a salary of $60,000 a year; the estate" of 
John J. Mitchell has been paid $50,000 for the serv- 
ices of said Mitchell as receiver prior to his death; 
and that the total salaries so paid to said receivers, 
their secretary, and counsel now amount to more 
than $400,000, all of w^hich has been charged to the 
joint account of the Chicago Railways Company and 
the City of Chicago as an operating expense, so that 
55% or about $220,000 has been charged to the City 
of Chicago; and 

Whereas, The services rendered by the said Henry 
A. Blair as receiver are practically the same services

he ought to give as prersident of the Chicago Surface 
Lines, and the same is true as to Sheean and Hupp. 
This means that the Chicago Railways Company 
has doubled the salaries of said Blair, Sheean and 
Hupp and made these salaries unreasonable and ex- 
cessive, Mr. Blair's salaries are $45,000 a year more 
than the President of the United States receives. 
These salaries ought not in any event to exceed the 
following amounts as operating expenses of which 
the City pays 55% : 

Henry A. Blair $60,000 a year 

James M. Sheean 25,000 a year 

Frank L. Hupp 6,000 a year; and 

Whereas, The 1907 ordinance grant to the Chicago 
Railways Company provides as follows: 

"Section 19. The company may pay to the 
directors, officers, agents and attorneys of the 
company as a part of the operating expenses, com- 
pensation for their services commensurate with 
the service actually rendered by them respectively, 
taking into consideration the compensation paid 
to directors, officers, agents, and attorneys of other 
corporations or enterprises of similar magnitude 
and general character for like services, but the 
said city by written notice thereof may object to 
the payment thereafter of compensation in excess 
of an amount or rate specified in such objection 
to any such director, officer, agent or attorney, and 
in the event of a disagreement between the com- 
pany and the said city as to the proper amount 
to be paid as such compensation, the matter shall 
be submitted to the judgment of the said Board of 
Supervising Engineers whose decision shall be 
final and binding upon the parties, except that if 
either party shall be dissatisfied with such deci- 
sion of said board, then such dissatisfied party may 
make application to any court of competent juris- 
diction to pass upon such objection and to deter- 
mine the amount of the compensation or salary to 
be paid." 

now therefore, be it • 

Resolved, By the City Council of the City' of Chi- 
cago, That the said Chicago Railways Company and 
its receivers are hereby notified and directed to 
readjust the accounting with the City under the 
1907 ordinance as extended so as to take out of the 
joint account all of the salaries of said receivers and 
of their counsel and secretary and to reimburse the 
city to the extent of 55% of such salaries hereto- 
fore paid. 

Resolved Further, That if the Chicago Railways 
Company and its receivers shall fail to do this with- 
in ten days from this date then the City Comptroller 
is hereby authorized and directed on behalf of the 
City of Chicago to submit to the Board of Supervis- 
ing Engineers under said 1907 ordinance for its de- 
termination the question whether the salaries now 
being paid to the said Henry A. Blair as president, 
Frank L. Hupp as secretary, and James M. Sheean 
as counsel, of the Chicago Surface Lines are ex- 
cessive and disproportionate to services rendered, 
and also the question whether the salaries of the 
receivers of the said Chicago Railways Company 
and the salaries of the secretary and counsel for said 
receivers properly constitute an operating expense 
or are proper to be charged to the joint account of 
said Company and City, and the said Board of 
Supervising Engineers is requested to inquire into 
the character and extent of the services performed 
by the above-named persons for the Chicago Sur- 
face Lines. 

Resolved Further, That the City Clerk be and is 



hereby authorized and directed to deliver a copy 
of this resolution to the said Chicago Railways Com- 
pany and a copy to the receivers of said company, 
and also file a copy with the said Board of Super- 
vising Engineers.

Proposed Restriction of the City Council to tlie Passage 
of One Appropriation Ordinance in Each Year. 

Alderman Clark presented the following resolution, 
which was ordered published and referred to the Com- 
mittee on Finance: 

Whereas, It has been the practice — oyer a period 
of many years, for the Committee on Finance, in its 
work of providing appropriations to carry on the 
fiscal activities of the City's departments, to rec- 
ommend to the City Council for passage what is 
known as the Supplemental or Baby Budget, on or 
about June 30th of each year, and 

Whereas, It has been found that such appropria- 
tion of funds, supplemental to the City's original 
budget, passed in the early part of the year, does 
not tend toward the strictest economy in the ex- 
penditure of the taxpayers' money, hut, on the con- 
trary, leads to a now well-defined habit on the part 
of department heads of looking forward to the mid- 
dle of the year as the time when they may expect, 
successfully, to have accorded to them additional 
funds for the conduct of their respective depart- 
ments for the last six months of the year, and 

Whereas, The passage of but a single, scientifically 
prepared, budget at the beginning of the year, which 
would anticipate and provide only for the reasonable 
needs and requirements of the City's departmental 
activities, would tend to a more pronounced effi- 
ciency in the conduct of the business of the city 
government and eliminate the expenditure of goodly 
sums for municipal activities not contemplated or 
covered in the various departments' original esti- 
mates and which, in the light of subsequent develop- 
ment, have not always been found necessary or ex- 
pedient, and 

Whereas, By the adoption of the single method 
of appropriation for the fiscal year, experience 
would seem to indicate that an appreciable increase 
in available funds on hand at the close of the year 
would be found to exist because of the non-appro- 
priation,, in the middle of the year, of all of the 
anticipated revenue from miscellaneous sources for 
the entire year, and 

Whereas, The adoption of this suggested policy 
by the City Council would undoubtedly result in a 
more sound, economic and efficient administration 
of the problem of appropriating for the financial 
necessities of the city government, and, as a result, 
obviate the necessity, in the future, of dealing with 
the problem of any possible deficits in the City 
Treasury, therefore he it 

Resolved, That an ordinance be prepared that will 
restrict the City Council to the passage of but one 
Appropriation Ordinance in each year. 

Sundry Claims. 

Alderman Clark presented claims of Henry W. Alex- 
ander, R. Hollihan, Charles Kasalek, Thomas Rogers,

In the Matter of Providing Additional Schools 
in the 33rd Ward. 

Alderman Petlak presented the following resolution, 
which was ordered published and referred to the Com- 
mittee on Schools, Fire and Civil Service: 

Whereas, The Kosciuszko, Burr and Drummond 
public schools, which serve the children in the 33rd 
ward are inadequate to care for the children in the 
district and are old buildings and very deficient in 
necessary school facilities; and 

Whereas, It now appears to be the plan of the 
Board of Education to care for the surplus children 
in the 33rd ward by the erection of junior high 
schools on the sites of the Wells and Pulaski schools; 
and 

Whereas. The people in the 33rd ward are op- 
posed to this plan as it will necessitate their chil- 
dren travelling to a great distance and crossing busy 
thoroughfares which would be a source of danger; 
and 

Whereas, The 33rd Ward has received less con- 
sideration from the Board of Education in the mat- 
ter of building of new schools than any other dis- 
trict in the City of Chicago; therefore be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of 
Chicago hereby respectfully requests the Board of 
Education to include in its building plan provisions 
for necessary schools in the 33rd Ward.

Promise of Co-operation, by Hon. Floyd E. Thompson, 
in the Construction of Elevated "Through" 
Highways for Chicago. 

Alderman Massen presented the following communi- 
cation, which was ordered published and placed on file: 

Chicago, October 28, 1928. 

Mr. John A. Massen, City Hall, Chicago, Illinois: 

My Dear Alderal\n — The preliminary report with 
reference to elevated through highways for the Chi- 
cago Metropolitan area, issued by the Committee of 
the City Council, of which you are Chairman, shows 
careful study of the subject and offers a promise 
of relief from the costly enemy of progress — traf- 
fic congestion. 

We must have wider highways to carry the traf- 
fic load of the main arteries leading into the large 
cities of this State. It will take eight or ten of 
these highways, leading out of Chicago in different 
directions, to give the people of this State the ser- 
vice to which they are entitled. Co-operation be- 
tween the Federal, State and County governments 
will provide these additional highway facilities, and 
without a direct property tax. 

Valuable as it is, the mere widening of streets 
and highways will not give us rapid and uninter- 
rupted vehicle movement. We must eliminate 
grade crossings, and that means elevated highways 
connecting the terminal districts of Chicago with 
the principal highways of the State. 

The rights of way of railroads entering into Chi- 
cago offer a possibility for such a comprehensive 
system of elevated arterial highways. Such high- 
ways would utilize the present freight and 
passenger depots and existing warehouses, and 
would disturb no terminal facility, inconvenience 
no industry, and involve none of the disagreeable 
readjustments attending all widening projects. The 
practicability of utilization of space over railroad 
rights of way for elevated highways has been proven 
by the construction of Park avenue over the New 
York Central Railroad right of way in New York 
City. 

Any comprehensive system of elevated highways 
constructed in this Metropolitan area becomes at 
once a part of the national, state and county high- 
way systems, and such a combination of govern- 
mental agencies ought to be able to devise some 
practical means of financing the project without a 
, direct tax burden upon the people of our state and 
without special assessments. 

I shall follow the work of your committee with 
great interest and shall be glad to co-operate with 
you in carrying out this great program. 

Sincerely yours, 

(Signed) - Floyd E. Thompson.

Request for Support of the Chicago Schubert 
Centennial Committee, 

The City Clerk presented the following proclamation, 
which was ordered placed on file: 

Office of the Mayor,] 
Chicago, November 15, 1928.] 

proclamation 

Where-As, In July, 1928, more than 500,000 dele- 
gates from all parts of the globe made a pilgrimage 
to the City of Vienna, the capital of the Government 
of Austria, in order to do homage to the immortal 
musical genius of Franz Schubert, whose unsur- 
passed labor of love and undying art in the course 
of time has become a highly cherished treasure of 
all nations; and 

Whereas, At the Schubert Centennial in Vienna 
the City of Chicago was officially represented by more 
than 1,000 of our fellow citizens, and the United 
States by more than 6,000 representatives, who re- 
solved that the Memory of Franz Schubert should be 
honored in a fitting manner in their respective 
municipalities; and 

Whereas, The purpose of erecting a fitting memo- 
rial to Franz Schubert, whose compositions and 
musical achievements contributed so largely to the 
art of music, appeals to Chicago's lovers of music; 
and 

Whereas. Chicago as a City, is second to none in 
its musical attainments; and 

Whereas, November 19th is the day on which in 
every cultural center throughout the world, young 
and old, rich and poor, will commemorate in a 
solemn and impressive manner, the one hundredth 
anniversary of Franz Schubert's much lamented and 
early death, and thus set an example to, and pass 
on to coming generations, the solemn precept of 
their forbears to hold in high esteem the geniuses 
and benefactors of the race who have contributed 



and enricherl the cullui;il heritage of their people 
and mankind; and 

WiiminAS, A group of representative citizens of 
the Cil,y of Chicago, under tin- leadership of "The 
American A(hiiir(ti's of Cierman Art", and, in co- 
()[)ei'ation with niiirierous other cultural organiza- 
tions, have already organized "The Chicago Schubert 
C(!nt(!nnial (>ommittee,"; and 

Wjikhkas, The said Chicago Schubert Centennial 
Corrunitfee lias made arangements for an impressive 
Schubert Contenriial in thr; City of Chicago, begin- 
ning, November 18th, at the lAuditorium Theatre, as 
well as many of/her festivals, the locations of which 
will be announced later in the daily press; and 

Whereas, The said Chicago Schubert Centennial 
Committee under the leadership of the American 
Admirers of German Art, and in co-operation with 
other cultural and civic organizations of the City of 
Chicago, have resolved to bring about the erection 
in the City of Chicago of a fitting monument to the 
immortal genius of Franz Schubert; now, therefore, 

I, Wm. Hale Thompson, Mayor of the City of Chi- 
cago, do hereby respectfully recommend and sug- 
gest that all citizens of Chicago render to f>he respec- 
tive committees in charge of these anniversary cele- 
brations that loyal support which so meritorious a 
cause deserves.

In the Matter of the Attitude of Certain Gubernatorial 
Candidates Concerning "Home Rule" over 
Local Public Utilities. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tions, which were ordered placed on file: 

Democratic State Central Committee,) 
Chicago, November 1, 1928.) 

City Council, City Hall, Chicago, Illinois: 

Gentlemen — Replying to your resolution advise 
that it is too late in the campaign to enter into a 
full discussion of amendment of the public utility 
law so as to return to the City Council the control 
and regulation of public utilities within the city of 
Chicago. This is a big subject and one that will re- 
quire careful consideration. 

No one appreciates more than I do the lack of 
co-operation between the City Council and the Com- 
merce Commission, and the great injustice that is 
being done the people of your great city because of 
this lack of co-operation. 

I do pledge you now the appointment to the Com- 
merce Commission of the biggest men in Illinois I 
can draft for this service, and I pledge my personal 
attention to the important work of this Commission. 
The Commission appointed by me will co-operate 
earnestly with the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago and will give to the people of your city ade- 
quate public utility service at a reasonable rate. 
The transportation problem is one of the big prob- 
lems which will require the attention of the state 
administration and the City Council, and in the solu- 
tion of that problem you will have all the help I 
can give you. The people of this city are entitled 
to a transportation system that will convey them 
from their homes to their places of business or 
employment for one fare. Where the street-car 
system cannot be immediately extended in newly de- 
veloped territory, I, favor the use of feeder buses 
to supplement the street car service. iMy administra-

In the Matter of Moneys Due the City of Chicago 
from Cook County. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was referred to the Committee on Finance: 

Department op Finance,] 
Chicago, October 23, 1928.| 

Hon. Mayor and Members of the City Council of the 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — The Comptroller desires to call to 
the attention of the City Council the fact that the 
County of Cook owes to the Corporate and other 
funds of the City the following items covered by 
warrants for collection rendered up to October 1, 
1928: 

For the board and feed of prisoners for 

years 1906 to date, as billed $2,445,401.42 

For copying of birth, still birth and 
death certificates up to September 
20, 1919 51,746.20 

Other miscellaneous charges credited 
to the Corporate Fund of the City.. 42,174.53 

Special Assessments 15,651.44 

Unpaid water charges 153,125.65 

Construction Division Capital Ac- 
count 5,179.89 

Restoration of Street Openings Capi- 
tal Account 46.67 

Total $2,713,325.80 

The principal item, as will be noted, is that for 
the board and feed of County prisoners. 

In 1891 the City entered into an agreement with 
Cook County in accordance with those sections of 
the Statute of Illinois pertaining thereto,' namely, 
Section 8 to Section 9 of Chapter 67. This contract 
or agreement was for the period of one year and 
expired in 1892. 

Since then, the City has been accepting prisoners 
from the various courts of Cook County and board- 
ing and feeding such prisoners at the expense of 
the Corporate Fund of the City and has secured no 
reimbursement for such expense since 1906.

ing the City for the board and feed of such prisoners 
as high as 75o to 80c p<!r day exclusive of any charge 
for overhead expense, suoh as depreciation. 

All of these warrants for collection for board and 
feed of prisoners have been turned over to the ofYice 
of the Corporation Counsel within from thirty to 
sixty days after they have become delinquent and as 
yet nothing has been collected on them. 

Apparently, since the City has no agreement with 
the County, the County may be able to use the 
Statute of Limitations on all claims over five years 
old, if it so sees fit. 

The longer we delay in settling these claims the 
more the County may be able to include under this 
defense. 

The County has numerous claims of more or less 
doubtful value which they claim the City owes them. 
However, the mere fact that they may have some 
valid alleged claims against the City should not be 
any reason for delaying the immediate settlement of 
the whole question at the earliest possible moment. 

For your further information, in all of the years 
past the Comptroller has been including these claims 
as possible resources against which appropriations 
have been made year after year. 

There is apparently no law that requires the City 
to accept the County prisoners at the City's House of 
Correction in the absence of an agreement to that 
effect. The courts, how^ever, are sending suoh pris- 
oners to the House of Correction as a matter of duty, 
principally based upon a misapprehension as to the 
existence of such an agreement betw'een the City 
and the County. 

If the courts were aware of the fact that no such 
agreement exists, it would not be their duty to send 
such prisoners to the House of Correction, but to 
the County Jail. 

The Comptroller with the foregoing in mind, 
therefore, urges that the City Council take immed- 
iate steps to cause the settlement of all outstanding 
claims. 

Second : To cause an agreement to be entered 
into between the City and County, in case it is the 
policy of the City to continue accepting County 
prisoners at the House of Correction. 

Third : To notify the courts of the fact that there 
is no existing valid agreement between the City and 
County covering this subject matter. 

Fourth : To make sure in the future that the 
City Corporate Fund will secure reimbursements 
from the County for such expense, so that the deficit 
caused by appropriating against such item of con- 
tingent resource will be eliminated in the future. 

Yours very truly,

Comptroller.

Restriction of the City Council to tlie Passage of One 
Appropriation Ordinance in Each Year. 

The Committee on Finance submitted the following 
report, which was, on motion of Alderman Clark, de- 
ferred and ordered published: 

Chicago, November 21, 1928. 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chicago 
in City Council Assembled: 

Your Committee on Finance, to whom was re- 
ferred (October 31, 1928, page 3865) a resolution 
restricting the City Council to the passage of but 
one appropriation ordinance in each year, having 
had the same under advisement, beg leave to report 
and recommend the adoption of the resolution sub- 
mitted herewith : 

WHEREAS, The City Council has from time to time 
attempted to establish a definite policy with respect 
to the limitation of the time of making appropria- 
tions, which intention the Council has been unable 
to carry out for various reasons, among which is the 
fact that no preliminary announcement was made so 
that the various department heads and the public 
in general could take notice of same; and. 

Whereas, In order to effectively carry out the 
policy agreed upon, which is undoubtedly for the 
best interests of the city, it is necessary that the 
policy of the City Council in relation to the city's 
budget and appropriations should be definitely stated 
in advance of the next fiscal year, so that it may be 
established and made known to all the departm'ents 
of the city government and to the citizens of Chi- 
cago in general; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of 
Chicago hereby declares itself in favor of passing only 
one appropriation ordinance for each fiscal year, 
to be adopted on or before March 31st of each year 
and to be known as the Annual Appropriation Bill 
of the City of Chicago, in which all appropriations 



for the entire fiscal year from all the established 
funds of the City of Chicago shall be made; be it 
further 

Resolved, That no additional or supplemental ap- 
propriations shall be made after the passage of the 
Annual Appropriation Bill in any year unless there 
is such an emergency as makes a further appro- 
priation imperatively necessary; and be it further 

Resolved, That the City Council hereby pledges it- 
self to conform^ to and to carry out the policy ex- 
pressed herein. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) John S. Clark, 

Chairman. 



Authority to City Treasurer to Pay Warrants Issued 
against the General Corporate Fund Pending the 
Sale of Tax Anticipation Warrants, Etc. 

The Committee on Finance submitted the following 
report, which was, on motion of Alderman Clark, de- 
ferred and ordered published: 

Chicago, November 21, 1928. 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chicago 
in City Council Assembled: 

Your Committee on Finance, to whom was re- 
ferred a communication from the Corporation 
Counsel in re honoring of warrants by the City 
Treasurer against the General Corporate Fund, hav- 
ing had the same under advisement, beg leave to re- 
port and recommend the adoption of the following 
resolution: 

Whereas, There is not enough money available in 
the general corporate fund to meet the city's needs 
for pay-rolls and necessary expenses for the re- 
mainder of the year 1928; and 

Whereas, It will not be possible under the law to 
secure additional loans from the surplus funds of 
the City for such purposes for the current year, and 
it is the sense of this body that it will not be ad- 
visable or proper to make further efforts to secure 
a loan for the purpose; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That in order to make it possible to pay 
the policemen, firemen and other city employes, and 
to pay such necessary expenses as must be met, we 
hereby request the City Treasurer to continue to 
honor warrants drawn against lawful appropriations 
for pay-rolls and such other necessary expenses as 
may be forwarded to him in due form by the City 
Comptroller, even though there is not enough money 
in the general corporate fund available to pay them, 
and to hold sucb warrants duly endorsed by the 
payees as his security until he can be reimbursed 
for the advances made by him in response to this 
request, through the sale of tax anticipation war- 
rants or otherwise; and be it further 

Resolved, That we do hereby pledge ourselves to 
take such action as may be necessary, and as soon 
after the close of the current fiscal year as possible, 
to provide a means of securing the necessary funds 
to reimburse the City Treasurer for the advances 
he will make in pursuance of the request contained 
in this resolution. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) John S. Clark, 

Chairman.

tors, and that the pavements constructed in Chicago

ments, it is a matter of great concern that they 
should get the best type of pavement at a fair cost,

Chicago paving contractors are charging more for 
pavements than contractors in other cities are charg- 
ing and w'hether the proper types of pavement are 
being put in in Chicago; therefore, be it 

Ordered, That the Committee on Judiciary and

Whereas, In order to adequately serve during 
periods of peak water conssumption those portions 
of the city farthest from our existing pumping sta- 
tions, it is necessary to place elevated water storage 
tanks at strategic points in the distribution system; 
and 

Whereas, A storage tank sufficiently large and 
connected to the water supply system with adequate 
mains will function as a reserve in time of peak 
water consumption or scarcity; and 

Whereas, Many other large cities are using ele- 
vated water storage tanks in conjunction with the 
municipal water supply system and with excellent 
results; therefore be it 

Ordered, That the City Engineer be and he is 



hereby instructed and directed to report to this 
Council upon the feasibility of installing elevated 
water storage tanks in the outlying districts of Chi- 
cago as a means of supplementing the present pump- 
ing stations and for the purpose of relieving the 
scarcity of water during times of peak load water 
consumption and resulting diminution of water

amination, and frequently in places that are not 
suitable for the purpose; and 

Whereas, It is even alleged that in many instances

exhibitions in one night, to the detriment of their 
health; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the Committee on Parks, Play- 
grounds, Aviation and Athletics be and they are 
hereby directed to make a thorough • investigation 
of all amateur boxing contests, with a view to pro- 
hibiting organizations that do not safeguard the

ment of "Parking" Restrictions in Certain Territory. 

Alderman Crowe presented the following resolution: 

Whereas, At every meeting of the City Council 
Aldermen introduce ordinances prohibiting "park- 
ing" in front of certain described premises, with the 
result that many heavily developed territories near 
the "loop" district are now practically covered with 
"no parking" restrictions, a condition which leads 
to much confusion as far as the general public is 
concerned; and 

Whereas, The 42nd Ward comprises such a dis- 
trict by reason of its proximity to the "loop", and 
at each meeting of the City Council it is necessary 
to introduce many ordinances for "parking" restric- 
tions to comply with the requests of merchants and 
individuals; and 

Whereas, The city has an engineer who devotes 
his time exclusively to traffic problems, and is 
equipped to make a survey of the districts in the 
City of Chicago that are heavily developed with 
hotels and like buildings, with a view to making 
a recommendation for "no parking" restrictions in 
these districts; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the Traffic Engineer in the employ 
of the City of Chicago be and he is hereby directed 
to make a study of "parking" restrictions and the 
needs for same in the heavily developed sections 
of the city, and to submit to the City Council a 
plan for "no parking" that will apply to those 
districts. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
said resolution without reference thereof to a com- 
mittee. 

Alderman Crowe moved to adopt said resolution. 
The motion prevailed.
